CHRONICLE OF THE MONTH [Newspaper Article] — The Australasian Sketcher with Pen and Pencil — 27 November 1875

Directly after the expulsion of the Berry Ministry from office and the installation of its successors, the members of the late Government devoted themselves with energy to the task of. getting up opposition to the re-election, of Ministers wherever it was practicable. « In several cases this was not practicable, and in such cases Ministers were returned unop posed. In this way Mr. Kerferd, Mr. Gillies, Mr. M'LeUan; Mr. Macpherson, and Mr. Anderson were returned without a contest. At Warrnambool an opponent was found for Sir James M'Culloch in Mr. Benjamin Douglass, in whose interest Mr. Berry wrote a letter to Warrnambool, in which he gracefully characterised Sir James M'Culloch as a ' Brummagem article,' although two inonthB before- Mr. Berry was trying hard to induce that gentleman to join him in the formation of a Ministry. .In East. Bourke Mr. Mirams, a Collingwood protectionist, took the field against the Minister of Education, Mr. Ramsay. At Ballarat West Mr. Jones was opposed...

THE AUSTRALIAN SKETCHER SATURDAY, NOVEMBER 27, 1875. A FEVER SCARE. [Newspaper Article] — The Australasian Sketcher with Pen and Pencil — 27 November 1875

SATURDAY, NOVEMBER. 27, 1875. A FEVER SCARE. During the last few weeks the general and local boards of health and their officers and the city and suburban councils have been showing a degree o£ activity in sanitary matters that is quite unwonjted. Drains have been inspected and purified, nuisances suppressed, stagnant water drained away, and many sources of annoyance and disease that have existed for a very long time have been removed. It would be very pleasant to congratulate our sanitary authorities upon this evidence of their interest in our welfare, if there was the slightest reason to suppose that it sprang from any increased enlightenment, or zeal, or conscientious sense of duty on their part. Unfortunately, we have no ground for believing anything of the kind. So far as we can judge, they show this zeal and activity for the moment, simply because they are frightened into doing so by the actual pressure of an epidemic, and we may reasonably believe that they will speedily rela...

NEARLY A SERIOUS MISTAKE. [Newspaper Article] — The Australasian Sketcher with Pen and Pencil — 27 November 1875

NEARLY A SERIOUS MISTAKE. A feeling of deadly hostility exists between the white and aboriginal races in the vast tract, of Northern country brought to light, and more or less utilised by the white man, since. the opening of the Palmer diggings. A correspondent of the Brisbane Courier mentions one amongst a hoBt of instances that have come under hi« notice to Bhow that ' potting' a blackfellow is regarded as a praiseworthy action in a general way. A few days ago a digger of his acquaintance, just down from the Palmer, Btated to him that Bhortly before he left the diggings he was out prospecting alone amongst tbe gullies of the Upper Palmer, when darkness overtook him before he could get to his camp. He was, therefore, abouc to make the best of it for the night under a tree, when he saw a fire on the hill above him. - This be approached cautiously, carrying his double-barrelled gun in his hand, and with a good Bix-chambered Colt in bin belt, when he heard tbe unmistakable low monoton...

EXPERIMENTAL FOREST CULTURE IN SOUTH V AUSTRALIA. [Newspaper Article] — The Australasian Sketcher with Pen and Pencil — 27 November 1875

EXPERIMENTAL FOREST CULTURE IN SOUTH AUSTRALIA.- v Mit. Hardy, of Bankside Vineyard, writes to the South. Ana Iralian Ittfjibter as follows:— On the farm of Mr. Jesse Ridley, about' a couple miles north of Salisbury, on the Gawler PlaiuB, and near the railway, may be seen from three to four acres of gums and wattles, growing most luxuriantly in country where they neither are nor ever where known to grow within the memory of the oldest white people. 'Sixteen years since Mr. Ridley took up a young seedling redgum with his pocket-knife, and took it home and planted it near his residence. It is now a magnificent tree 42ft. in height, and measuring 5ft. in girth at 6ft, from the ground. Ten years ago Mr. Ridley planted about an acre' of redgum in rows about Oft. apart on tbe site of a fruit garden which did not do well, and these are now growing up fine Htraiglifc trees, many of them from 30 to 40ft. high, and over Gin. in diameter in the stem. Encouraged by the success of this planting,...

THE FINISH FOR THE DERBY.

The sudden fall of a heavy shower at such a time all at, once converts a crowd into a- mere forest of umbrellas.

Sketches with Pen JOHN RENTON.—A ROMANCE OF THE SOUTH SEAS. [Newspaper Article] — The Australasian Sketcher with Pen and Pencil — 27 November 1875

JOHN RENTON.— A ROMANCE OF THE SOU MI SEAS. ? The Queenslander gives an ably-written narrative of the ad ventures of John Renton, the sailor, who was rescued by the schooner Bobtail Nag from the savages on the island of Malay ta. The particulars were taken down from the lips of Renton himself, the sole white survivor of the incidents described. We quote, the narrative in full by way of elucidating our engraving of the scene in. the boat :— In the early part of the year 1SC8, just after the news of the attempted assassination by O'Farrell of Prince Alfred, at Sydney, had reached San Francisco, there sailed from that port a large ship,' the Reynard, of Boston, bouud on a cruise to the guano islands of the South Pacific Ocean. Her crew were principally Boston men, but there was also on board a lad named John Renton, 19 years of age, a native of Strom ness, in the Orkney Islands, who had been 'crimped,' and found himself bound on a voyage, whether be liked it or not. The vessel, after c...

The Theatres [Newspaper Article] — The Australasian Sketcher with Pen and Pencil — 27 November 1875

Madame Janausohek completed a short and not very successful career in Melbourne on October 29,rwhen she made, her final appearance at the Theatre ..Royal, on the occasion of a benefit given to the management. She played in the third act of ' Mary Stuart,' and .irk' the fifth act of ? ' Macbeth. ' On the same occasion Mr: 'J. E. M'Donbugh played Iago in the second and third acts of ' Othello,' but it would be top much to say that he exactly realised one's notions of the subtle 'Venetian. On the following day a young lady lately arrived from the United States, who chooses to be known as ' ' Nell, the Calif ornian Diamond,' came for the first time before a Melbourne audience. Of her dibut we quote the following from ' Tahite,' the dramatic critic of The Australasian: — 'Her entry was the signal for very marked applause, and this was continually renewed at intervals all through the piece. The feeling of the audience also showed itself in a liberal presentation of flowers, many of which ...

SPORTING [Newspaper Article] — The Australasian Sketcher with Pen and Pencil — 27 November 1875

^%i!i^a^ SPORT 1 NC ^f^^v^' The chief sporting event of the year: — the Spring Meeting of the Victoria Racing Club — has taken place at Flemington with the most unprecedented success. The gathering on the different events has been extremely large in a cite of the weather, which has been cold, and wet, and very unsettled. The season commenced on Saturday, November 0 — the Derby Day— when, although the weather was far from agreeable, the attendance on the course numbered about 12,000 or 13,000 persons. His Excellency the Governor of New South Wales (Sir Hercules Robinson), who came over from Sydney to witness the races, drove down to the course in his own four-in-hand, and remained until the last race was over. The racing during the day was not very exciting. The opening event-^-the Melbourne Stakes — was. won by Kingsborough, who was scarcely called upon to race. The winner is owned by Sir Hercules Robinson, whose victory was very popular. The Hotham Handicap was won by Kincrnchnie, ...

THE COURSE ON THE CUP DAY. [Newspaper Article] — The Australasian Sketcher with Pen and Pencil — 27 November 1875

THE COURSE ON THE CUP DAY. The following animated sketch of the aspect of the Flemington Racecourse on the Cup Day is from The Argus of November 10 : — The annual race for the Melbourne Cup, which represents to us what the Isthmian games did to the ancients, the great event of Longchamps to the Parisians, or the Derby Day to the Britisher, was celebrated yesterday as the great holiday event of the year with all the pomp and circumstance of glorious turfdom, which have for many years past marked the great equine contest. The weather yesterday' morning, instead of forming the ordinary introductory conversation, was a subject of anxious interest and eager watching to thousands of people. To many the day's enjoyment was solely dependent upon it, to others the behaviour .of the clouds meant success or failure for particular horsep, and for the ladies who had spent weeks in preparing magnificent toilettes, the skyey influences were to confer happiness or inflict unutterable woe. The resul...

CAPTAIN HOVELL, THE EXPLORER. [Newspaper Article] — The Australasian Sketcher with Pen and Pencil — 27 November 1875

CAPTAIN HOVELL; THE EXPLORER. The death of Captain W. H. Hovell, the companion of Mr.   Hamilton Hume, in the celebrated overland journey from Goulburn to Port Phillip in the year 1824, occurred at Sydney on November 9. He bad attained the ripe age! of 90 years before he, passed away, and he lived to see the country of which he was one of the early explorers become the most flourishing colony of the Australian group. His name must always he intimately associated with the early settlement of this colony, for the discoveries made in this first overland journey to Port Phillip were among the strongest inducements which led to the after colonisation of Victoria from Tasmania. At the time that this expedition took place Australia Felix was a terra incognita, and Wlas 'regarded amongst the settlers in New South Walen.na uninhabitable and impassable. In 1817 Surveyor-General Oxley reported, as demonstrated beyond doubt, that the country south of the parallel ot 34deg., and wes...
